GSAC celebrates 10 years with huge birthday celebration

Friday, 22 March

The Goonellabah Sports & Aquatic Centre is celebrating its 10th birthday with a huge week of celebrations from Monday, April 1 to Saturday, April 6.

The centre was opened in 2009 by Council as a community facility that would provide a full range of aquatic, sport and fitness services to residents of the Lismore Local Government Area.

GSAC Assistant Manager Yonika Mantel said the whole community was invited to take part in the birthday celebrations.

“Every week thousands of people come through the doors at GSAC to participate in swimming activities, team sports, group fitness and individual fitness programs,” she said.

“Exercise and physical movement is so important for everyone – it keeps us flexible and energetic, it slows the ageing process and it makes us feel mentally sharper and more emotionally stable. Equally important is the sense of community that is created by our patrons and for our patrons when they return time and time again. It’s really a win-win.

“We try to cater to all ages and all interests and we see people achieving their personal goals, either in the pool, the gym or the stadium. Now we want people to come in and help us celebrate this significant milestone.”

Throughout the week there will be a range of pop-up activities throughout the centre, culminating in a party on Saturday from 7am to 3pm.

Activities on Saturday will include:

  • Free party-themed SWITCH 45 class
  • Free Les Mills launches
  • Happy Hour in the café
  • Pool races
  • Slide and inflatable
  • Face painting
  • Cake cutting at 10am

We will have a variety of specials available for the week and on our birthday including $10 family entry to the pool on Saturday, April 6.

Come and help us celebrate GSAC’s 10th birthday party! There is no need to book – simply come on in for a day of celebration and fun.
